Sea View Senior Living Community
Former Brookings residents Robert and Theresa Dunn will be back in town June 15 to break ground on a new senior living development, Sea View Senior Living Community, to be located at Highway 101 and Gerlach Lane in Harbor.

The Dunns, as owners of Firstmark, Inc., have been involved with 27 senior living developments throughout Washington, Oregon, and California. They are coming full circle back to Brookings, where in 1995 they built Macklyn House, their first senior living development.

Plans being designed in coordination with senior housing architect John Lape are for a 110,000 square foot building that will provide a broad range of housing options, including studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments, with dining rooms, beauty salon, laundry facilities, plus social and activity areas.

Anticipated employment opportunities when the facility is fully occupied is to generate  more than 60 jobs with an estimated annual payroll of $1.2 million.

Robert Dunn said, “Of course we look forward to teaming up with Chetco Federal Credit Union, as they will be providing the project funding.”

He added, “We look forward to bringing this state of the art community to Brookings-Harbor. We believe Sea View Senior Living will be a wonderful opportunity to enhance the lives of Southern Oregon seniors and help stimulate the local Curry County economy.”

More details about the project will be made available following the groundbreaking next Monday.

  • Dollar, yields spike on Fed minutes; China data awaited
    The story was much the same in Britain where bond yields jumped on news that two Bank of England policymakers unexpectedly broke rank with colleagues and voted for higher interest rates earlier this month. The current target for Fed funds is a range of zero to 25 basis points and it effectively trades at just 8 basis points.
  • Fed debates merits of earlier rate hike given U.S. jobs gains
    Federal Reserve hinted on Wednesday that a surprisingly strong jobs market recovery could lead it to raise interest rates earlier than it had been anticipating. At the same time, most Fed officials wanted further evidence before changing their view on when rates should rise, according to the minutes from the central bank's July 29-30 meeting. "Labor market conditions had moved noticeably closer to those viewed as normal in the longer run," the minutes said, adding that policymakers "generally agreed" the job market was healing faster than they had expected. The Fed had said in its policy statement following the July meeting that there was "significant" labor market slack, but the minutes showed many members of its policy-setting panel thought this characterization "might have to change before long."
  • BofA in $16.5 billion deal with U.S. over mortgage bonds: source
    Bank of America Corp is expected to pay more than $16.5 billion to end investigations into mortgage securities that the bank and its units sold in the run-up to the financial crisis, in a deal that could be announced as early as Thursday, a person familiar with the matter said. An agreement in principle was reached earlier this month after a phone call between the bank's chief executive, Brian Moynihan, and Attorney General Eric Holder. Representatives of the Justice Department and Bank of America declined comment.
